Powder is very important for an oily girl like me. It helps in keeping the skin matte and oil-free, at least half-the-day?!? Finding the right stuff is not that easy. I have used different brand of powder. Some satisfied me while others were a disappointment. But today let me share to you my thoughts on the Nature Republic Blemish Lab Powder Pact.

Performance: 3.5/5 stars
Packaging: 4/5 stars
Pricing: 3/5 stars
I'm so disappointed with this product. This is a product I won't getting again. This didn't help much with the oiliness of my skin. After a couple of hours using my skin is oily again. I was expecting this to be a good powder since it caters to those with blemish skin like mine. I think they did not taken into consideration the oily issue. Good thing this didn't broke me out nor any skin allergies :) Plus this powder helps in keeping away harmful rays from the sun thanks to its SPF 30. A good protection when you are staying indoor. Otherwise, you shouldn't have to rely on this and forget your sunblock. This has a low sun protection. I really like the design of this pact. It's so cool yet very feminine. The only downside is the puff. It's so hard to find a puff for this powder since most powder pact available here are either in round or square shape. I think I bought this at around Php 700 staright from Korea through a pre-order from Charmaine. I'm not getting this again since it can't keep my skin matte or oil-free at least for 4-hours. There are better powder out there and ones that I have already tried. I have already a new powder from Nature Republic also with the same style of packaging. Will give my thoughts on it soon :)
Today is the last day of January 2011. God, time flies so fast! Enjoy :)
